Home / East Bay Neighborhood Guides / Ding Japanese Cuisine Opens in Rockridge

 

While I haven’t had the chance to visit, I am so excited to try Rockridge’s latest stop for sushi and Japanese food, Ding Japanese Cuisine.

Personally I’m already a big fan of Mitama, which technically sits in Berkeley (but still is part of the Rockridge neighborhood, IMO). Mitama has a great selection of sushi, including fresh sashimi flown in from the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, Japan; and a surprisingly wide variety of imported saki. I’m also a fan of Takara, known for it’s sushi-go-round floating boats. Though the sushi is not as good as Mitama, Takara is a great place to bring visiting friends for a casual and fun night out.

I’ll definitely let you know when I do try Ding Japanese Cuisine, but in the meantime, KQED’s Bay Area Bites blog shares their thoughts on this new Rockridge restaurant.

Ding Japanese Cuisine Opens in Rockridge for Lunch and Dinner

For many years, the Claremont Diner, just over the Berkeley border into Oakland at the intersection of Claremont and College Avenues, was a friendly bastion of BLTs on white bread, iceberg-lettuce salads and massive breakfast omelets.
